Operating Condition Change

The decision to move the campus’ operational status from regular operations to modified operations (C1, C2 or C3) is a complex process. Many individuals from across the University and the state can be involved in this decision.

Modified condition changes may occur for a variety of reasons, which may include severe weather, general safety concerns, aftermath of a tragedy, etc.

Each scenario requiring a change to campus operations is unique. Generally, the process in modifying the campus operational status follows this sequence:

  • Event or threat of an event occurs.
  • University representatives convene to discuss the possible need of a condition change. 
  • All representatives discuss and agree on the decision to alter the campus operating condition from its current status (regular operations, Condition 1 or Condition 2) to a modified status (Condition 1, Condition 2 or Condition 3).
  • Proper communication is disseminated, often via a NinerAlert.

Once the threat is over, the campus representatives reconvene to determine if the condition change can be lifted and regular operations resumed.

Review the University policies and definitions of each campus operating condition.
